to tax cut thing. you are a selfish sob if you are against it, and a clueless moron if you think that government warrants more money because of it we're all over it tomorrow,t. good night. gerri: tonight, more taxpayer green said to be wasted on another great energy program. nearly $200 million to be exact. plus, higher taxes, more spending cuts, or both. the big debate over how to fix our economy ridges on. the new survey out today from economists. welcome to "the willis report." ♪ gerri: and hello, everyone. it is the battle for the buckeye state, and it is getting expensive. president obama and challenger mitt romney said to campaign in a higher later this week. paul wright and leading the way today trying to rally the troops in an effort to us away the momentum away from the president. jeff flock exclusively sat down with republican vice-presidential nominee. and he joins me now. all right, he did not hold back on his criticism for the presidents, correct? >> reporter: that's right. he is not held back, and there are some republicans who have been somewhat critical of paul
are jobs. i will be the only candidate advocating eliminating income tax, corporate tax, abolishing the irs and replacing that with one federal consumption tax. i embrace the fair tax. i think that is the answer to jobs. if the private sector does not create tens of millions of jobs, i did not know what it will take to create tens of millions of jobs. it is the entry to china. i see manufacturing jobs flocking back to the united states. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no. they are arguing over who will spend more money on medicare. romney said he wants to increase spending for the military and balance the budget. it doesn't add up. i guess we believe in santa claus and the easter bunny and i do not think they are coming. host: gary johnson is with us and will add a third line for third party voters. we will get to your calls in just a couple of moments. what is the strategy for the rest of the election? guest: right now there is a lot of attention that is being drawn to what it is that i am saying. i'm being recognized for being at 6% nationally. i'll ask you an obvi
fundamentally to the issue of taxes, at least for mitt romney. the romney memo says that mitt romney will not raise taxes on anyone and that he will deliver tax cuts for the middle class. sounds pretty good, but the brookings tax policy center took a look at this issue, and here is what they found. under mitt romney 95% of americans making under $200,000 would have a tax increase averaging $2,000 while the wealthiest americans would see tax cuts of up to $86,000 per year. and his claim that he can give the wealthy those tax breaks and still close the deficit, that claim is mathematically impossible according to the tax policy center. romney's fuzzy math has put his surrogates in a bit of a tough spot. here is paul ryan trying to explain the impossible on fox us in yesterday. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away deductions. and we'll get to that. the first half lowering the tax rates does that cost $5 trillion -- >> no. >> you haven't given me the math. >> oh, it would take me too long to go throug

increasingly stepped up to support early childhood to also step up to the tax-writing committee and point out all of the tax loopholes we can close and all of the tax increases that were in absolutely liable the will provide the revenue that we need to provide the early childhood system with our children and families deserve. i think that is doable. >> join me in saying thank you to all of the speakers today to the [applause] thank you. we have our marching orders not. thank you to the kec foundation and c-span for joining us today. br adjourned. have a good afternoon. [inaudible conversations] >>> the potomac institute for policy studies at arlington va recently held a discussion on supply chain risks posed to the nation's cyberinfrastructure. government officials overseeing cybersecurity and the former acting senior director for cyberspace at the national security council were among the speakers at this to our event. >> ladies and gentlemen, if i could have your attention, please. my name is mike swetnam and it is my distinct honor and privilege to welcome here today for the seminar on the
where they asked whether you would take the bargain of one dollar's worth of tax increases or $10 worth of basically tax cuts and everybody raised their hands and said they would not accept that. we have become a country where -- it is not just one side, both sides, but more one side now than ever is not willing to be realistic about how we can tackle these challenges. if there is a crisis that i see in the united states for the long term, it is not the temporal issue of how we will deal with money. because i am very confident we will be able to deal with that. it is how will we bring that -- bring back our sense of what we can accomplish together as americans when we are realistic about those challenges. that is the thing i think about the word "crisis" in this country. >> mayor castro is not the first to suggest that. for 10 years now, we heard that the government is not asking all of us to do enough. >> it is interesting. the word "sacrifice," when i hear a politician say that, it usually means grab your wallet. it usually means increasing taxes. and i will give president obama credi
. the production tax credit in terms of wind energy. ohio's position and growing that industry enormously. the number one wind energy growth state in the country. romney is against the production tax credit. what do you think of president obama's policies, including the all of the above strategy with respect to natural gas? >> well, i will say that first of all he did the right thing in trying to invest in wind and solar. now, some of the investments didn't work out but their failure rate wasn't any -- was certainly lower than what would be obtained from investing in nuclear. nuclear is a -- is dead on wall street. and the government's trying to prop it up with loan guarantees. i don't agree with that. i agree with the solar investment. even president obama, at the convention, if you look at his speech, he mentions coal. now, as far as natural gas the glut is there. there are issues with fracking. it cannot be ignored. and so that's -- you know, but the economics that are underlying this election actually are arguing a
and complete work on behalf of the american people, including middle class tax cuts which we all agree upon should be extended, jobs legislation, the violence against women act, the farm bill, and a fiscal cliff causing individuals and businesses uncertainty, for the purpose of a parliamentary inquiry, the list goes on and on, should it not be possible to consider legislation that the republican leadership has decided instead to schedule only eight days of votes between august 3 and november 13. should it not be possible to consider legislation give the fact that the republican leadership has left town for seven weeks, the earliest congress has recessed for an election in over 50 years. mr. speaker, for the purposes of a parliamentary inquiry, the american people deserve answers and they deserve action. they deserve more than simply a pro forma session and do-nothing congress and republican obstructionism. mr. speaker, for the purposes of a parliamentary inquiry, democrats are committed to return to washington to continue the work of the people and i would ask my republican colleagues to jo

of canada to warrant is really a tax on the ground? >> the more important question, paul, is that isn't the red line in the minds of the israeli? canada has been consistent in saying that we continue to encourage the international community, the united nations, to keep the pressure on the iranian regime, to pursue sanctions, to pursue them -- diplomatic pressure where and when we have the opportunity. unfortunately, those opportunities are becoming less and less obvious. they are less and less effective. the preferred option always will be and remains these alternatives to keeping the pressure on on iran to bring about more acceptable behavior. trying to shift to the attitude of this regime and their leadership has proven to be enormous the challenging. >> my question was do you or do you not endorsed the prime minister of israel's red line. >> the israelis are going to make their own decisions. they will consult with their allies. they will continue to signal clearly their alarm over the nuclear ambitions of iran. we will continue to work with them, but these are sovereign decisions.
caucuses control their own taxes. republicans, their caucus would control all the taxes that republicans pay, and we republicans could pay for all the b.t. bombers and the infrastructure, all the things that we want, and the democrats can take all of their taxes they collect and pay for the social programs. and then, in the middle, all the sings that we both absolutely agree on, we just cut it in half and pay for that and then that way the things that each other don't like, both sides, we'd be able to pay for their own things that they want. host: that is a very interesting way of looking at taxation, randy. we're going to continue our conversation about one party versus divided government with paul. paul is calling from wisconsin. he's on our line for democrats. go ahead, paul. caller: hey. yeah, i definitely believe in a one-party system. i think if barack obama would have been able to get his policies throughout, his unemployment rate would probably be about 7% with all them jobs programs. you know, the republicans were trying to do everything they can to stall the economy so they can
to not pay federal taxes part of the 47%. oh irony thy bitter pill. mitt romney is leading among the 47% he derided in ohio. really, what can he do? what can governor romney do at this point in the campaign to turn it around? can he be funny? should he get an earring? get his hair done? what could he possibly do to try to change his fortune? i want to know what the bill press listeners think. we're at 1-866-55-press. is there any way mitt romney can win this or is he really in the lead and as dick morris and sean hannity have said, all of the polls are lying and all of the polls are fraud because it is such a liberal media. so we want to know what you think. give us a buzz at 1-866-55-press. and let's have a listen, if we can to a very fascinating piece of audio. mitt romney's garbage man who i presume, isn't part of the 47% but he's a hard working american citizen. i would imagine he's union. i would hope he is. and they tracked down one of mitt romney's sanitation workers. let's give a listen to this audio.
